If Today's Wrestling Games Are Missing Anything, It's A GM Mode
10 April 2014
Summary: Okay, in retrospect, I was a bit hard on WWE '13 because the gameplay for it was actually relatively decent (I was more upset over the fact that a significant portion of the popular wrestlers were released as DLC instead of being included with the game; I make no apologies for my criticism of WWE 2K14 , however.) Still, the games of today are missing a GM Mode, which lead to me finding this title. So what did I think of it?
Summary: I have not had a wrestling game since the playstation, and I figured i may as well get an updated version, and the price was right. This was on clearance new for a really low price, I figured what a steal. I was wrong. There is a reason for the lower price. Good: The graphics are great, characters real, good introduction to the ring.
Summary: all i have to say is that this game had good graphics ( color seemed a bit washed out and dull looking) and online keeps you playing at least, as for 24/7 mode, it was a big let down by thq/yukes, the storylines were the worst in the series, i was disappointed, and gm mode which i dont play at all only to unlock the gm award is just useless and boring, i cant wait til svr09 comes , i ot a feeling svr09o will be the best since smackdown HCTP
Summary: I have to say that with this years installment of the WWE Smackdown series I am kind of disappointed as it displays a true step back in the progression of the overall series. Here are a few pro's and con's about the game that I think anyone should consider before buying the game. Pro: They have overhauled the control system and fighting styles, for example if you're a high flyer like Rey Mysterio you can pull off some of his very spectacular moves with just a one button...
Summary: After eagerly anticipating the release of the first PS3 WWE title, and after owning the series for the past 5 years, the day finally came... and boy, was I disappointed. The BAD: Loading, loading and more loading...Every action in the game requires load times. This gets very frustrating. Reduced moveset- with the redesigned controls, although quite a bit easier to use, about 50% of the move choices are gone.
